“For we are like tree trunks in the snow. In appearance they lie sleekly and a little push should be enough to set them rolling. No, it can’t be done, for they are firmly wedded to the ground. But see, even that is only appearance.” (F. Kafka)

The exhibition at Sommer Contemporary Art’s Project Room invites five contemporary artists to exhibit works dealing with an unsound reality hanging on a thread – An infinite wait for a crucial moment in time.
